Democrats have usually conceded the evangelical vote during presidential elections, but Sen. Barack Obama is trying to change that by mobilizing what some call the "Christian left."
The state is a protection racket run by political gangsters. The church (as represented by organized religion) is a con run by salvation brokers. Both organizations prey on the fear of the public- fear of harm while on earth and fear of where they will spend the afterlife.
Things get spooky when the two enterprises look to work together. The consistent result in such cases is less religious freedom and less overall individual freedom. There cannot be less political freedom since the term is an oxymoron.
